Google has made a significant economic impact in Hawaii.  According to its recent Economic Impact Report, Google has “helped provide $82.3 million in economic activity for some 6,600 Hawaii businesses, nonprofits, and website publishers in 2013.”  The report cites Hawaii Forest & Trail, a Hawaii Island business that has  benefited directly from Google ad sales. Company founder Rob Pacheco was also a Google Maps Street View Trekker, helping to map parts of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.  Aloha, Russ.

  1. Interesting to see how much money they have to throw around. Being one of their “trekkers” would be a good job…get paid for walking around? I’d do that.

    1. A great job indeed. When I was working the news desk at Pacific Radio Group, our Google docs and tech help were most appreciated. Surely beat the pants off Microsoft’s lame Internet Explorer. The new Google Street View program is quite impressive. Google is a mixed blessing, but for those of us in the news media, its apps and tools made news gathering a lot easier. I guess this is a case of the iron fist in a velvet glove. Aloha, Russ.
